Breathwork: A Great Soul Connector And Healing Practice

Breathwork: A Great Soul Connector And Healing Practice

January 11, 2021

EP85: Breathwork is a very useful tool if you are someone who wants to achieve a better sense of self-awareness, higher consciousness and as my guest mentions, ‘self-healing’. Our body is a natural healer and breathwork is a proven effective tool to mentally, physically and spiritually, improve our overall well-being.

In this episode, I speak with Kelly West, a Registered Nurse, Certified Neuro Coach and lover of breathwork! She helps caregivers banish burnout and build resiliency. We talk about the benefits of  breathwork, especially to people who experience anxiety, depression, and trauma. Kelly also shared an interesting story about how she got serious in improving her own health and total wellness.

With her combined knowledge with Neuro Coaching and breathwork, she has focused on helping women get unstuck in life, to let go of the baggage and negative energy and connect the mind and body to bring greater healing so they can achieve their desires without any distraction.

With her breathwork practice, Kelly wants to inspire you to be open about learning new tools that will help you detoxify your life. So if you are someone whose interest is piqued, listen to the episode to learn more and reach out to Kelly for a session.

The Journey Card: We Have Exciting & Inspiring Adventures Ahead!

The Journey Card: We Have Exciting & Inspiring Adventures Ahead!

January 8, 2021

EP84: Today's message is once more coming straight from my intuition, prompted with a card from my Energy Oracle card deck, and it's a discussion about your 2021 journey.

Where will your journey take you in the next 12 months? What do you plan to focus on?

In this episode I talk about 3 different journey buckets... Physical, Mental, and Spiritual.

Or shall we call them adventure buckets? I resonate more deeply with the word adventure because it implies fun along the way! That word just SOUNDS fun, doesn't it?

In this episode I share examples and things I have planned for my 2021 adventures. And what I'd like you to do after listening, spend some time in quiet thought and then write down at least ONE ADVENTURE for each bucket. Title that piece of paper: "My 2021 Journey" and then get to work adventuring!!! 🤸‍♀️

Here's the exact wording from the card:

Journey - Movement, Relocation, Travel

"Pack your bags! The Journey card foretells upcoming travel or a shift in location. It may be as simple as a vacation, a retreat or class, or even a work-related trip. This card could also signal a move of residence or a job relocation. The upright position indicates that the plans should go off without a hitch. Still, be clear about your motivations and mindful of logistics.

All of life is a journey, and this card is telling you that you have some exciting and inspiring adventures ahead."

My 3 Tips For Surviving The Empty Nest

My 3 Tips For Surviving The Empty Nest

December 18, 2020

EP78: When you have spent most of your life as a mom, it's a major transition to adjust your life without your kids being around. One day they are there and then poof, they are gone! And many of us parents feel lost when the that happens and are left feeling lost and without purpose.

After my Midlife Mindset Mastery last week, I received several emails from women who are struggling with the empty nest and it prompted the idea for this episode.

Since I already had the idea, I didn't use pull an Energy Oracle card as I often do to get inspiration for topics. BUT, right before I hit record, I decided to pull one anyway to see if the card would give me any additional inspiration to add to the topic I had decided upon.

I'm not sure why these card pulls still amaze me... Time and time again, they are EXACTLY in line with what is needed at the moment. I swear it's uncanny and it's made me such a believer that the universe is always listening to us.

As I mentioned on the episode, the card is: 'Walking Away' and it couldn't have been more perfect for this episode topic!

The card says, "This card shows someone walking away from an existing situation. She is closing the gate behind her and is walking away into a misty, unknown future. This card upright reveals that it could be time for you ti make a similar decision. There may be something that you're finished with, perhaps a career goal, a relationship, or a long term-experience of any kind.

The familiarity of the situation may be enticing, but you're now ready to look at your options on the open road ahead. In reality, an important new beginning is at hand.

This card also indicates that now would be a good time to let go of an old habit, an emotional pattern, or false belief. No matter how deeply engrained a negative pattern may be, you now have the power to release it and move on to a freer, healthier way of thinking and relating to yourself and others.

Whether it's in the inner or outer world, this card is telling you that you have the readiness and resources to walk away from the old and move forward now."

Isn't it freaky how aligned with the topic it is?!?!

So if you want to know my 3 tips to surviving the empty nest, then this episode is for you!

My Daughter: Fellow Midlife Entrepreneur & Instigator Of My Late-in-Life Career Switch

My Daughter: Fellow Midlife Entrepreneur & Instigator Of My Late-in-Life Career Switch

December 14, 2020

EP77: This episode is by far my most favorite because I get to spend almost an hour chit-chatting with one of my most favorite people, my oldest daughter, Nikki, Johnson, who is now old enough to qualify as a midlifer!!! Shocking I know!

We talk about her entrepreneurial journey and how it has transformed in the past couple of years from running a multi 6 figure network marketing business to starting her own company.

She's a Certified Crystal Healer, a Reiki Level II Practitioner, a Spiritual Coach, and the founder of the High Vibe School.

Nikki's passion is evident as she talks about living authentically and helping other women, especially stressed moms to find joy in their lives by raising their vibrations and building self-confidence

She talks about her initial skepticism about the "woo" and how she began researching the science behind it which led her to a deep interest in crystals and a then desire to get certified. She draws on her extensive knowledge to teach others about them as well as other spiritual tools she's learned along the way.

You'll definitely get a peek into our relationship as mother and daughter and learn how she influenced her reluctant mother to get started as a health & fitness coach, which lit a fire inside of me that I didn't even know existed, to help people live better lives.

I hope you find inspiration in hearing how we each grew from our original online business in network marketing as it led us closer to the work we love and now feel called to do. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as Nikki & I enjoyed doing it!

Rebounding From The Loss of Her Best Friend And Business Partner

Rebounding From The Loss of Her Best Friend And Business Partner

December 7, 2020

EP76: After her business partner and best friend died two years ago from mucosal melanoma, a rare type of skin cancer, my guest Sarah Graham Fuhrmann, was forced to figure out how to carry on the indoor rowing business they had founded together 10 years earlier.

It was difficult not only losing someone she loved but also the person, well-known for her rowing expertise, their "icanrow2" business was built around.

Sarah had to deal with her grief, along with the challenges of "imposter syndrome." She wrestled with how she could possibly run the company without the rowing experience her partner had brought to the table.

But she finally realized she had other extremely valuable, and just as important, business experience as well as other strengths, built over a long career of other jobs. And she also had very experienced "rowing" coaches that had been trained in the rowing certification program she and her partner had created.

Now Sarah, even with the challenge of the pandemic and having to move everything that was done in-person to a virtual format, has continued to grow the company and learned that she can face and conquer any obstacle. And what's so heartening with her story is that she is keeping the mission she started with her partner alive and stays aligned by always checking in with what her friend would have wanted when making decisions.

Sarah's spirit shines through on our interview and it was contagious because after we disconnected from our call, I felt more energized than when we began. When you can inject someone else with positive energy, that's a powerful skill!!!
